    LOVE this Product. It definitely gave me the matte look I was going for and helped to make my lipstick last through the night. I reapplied once after eating, but that's it.

    velvety matte

    Comments about Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer:

    Gives a nice velvety matte. I prefer a dry matte but this does what it says it does. Just not sure it's exactly what I want for the price...might as well just buy an actual matte lipstick.

          Comments about Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer:

          I really like how matte lipstick looks but most of the products I like are very drying. I don't like glossy lipsticks because it makes me feel like a teenager (ha!). Not only did the Insta-Matte make my glossy lipstick look matte, but my it feels really rich and creamy on my lips. I absolutely love this product and will re-stock for a lifetime. I think I might just stop using my dry matte lipsticks and use this over creamy lipsticks.

          Works perfectly! And stays a matte finish. Very happy with it and I was skeptical.

          I like a dry matte and it doesn't give a dry matte. It gives a velvety matte.

            This stuff really works! It works the second you put it on top of a lip product. It's comfortable on the lips and has no harsh smell, I'm totally repurchasing

                A:

                Hi There! The Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer will make your lipstick last longer, but will not make it transfer proof. I suggest trying it with one of our Be Legendary Lipsticks in cream or matte. I think you'll be surprised to to see how long they wear.
